Greg Jennings should be a target for the San Diego Chargers in free agency
If the Green Bay Packers do not re-sign Greg Jennings or do not use the franchise tag on him, San Diego’s front office should try to sign Jennings.
Jennings is a two time Pro Bowler which includes selections in 2010 and 2011. Jennings ranks 12th among active players in yards per reception and receiving yards per game.
Jennings had at least 1,100 receiving yards from 2008-2010, had at least 10 touchdown receptions in a season twice, was on pace for 11 in 2011, but missed three games and was on pace for eight in 2012.
The one downside to adding Jennings is he has been an injury risk the last two seasons because he missed three games in 2011 and missed half of the regular season in 2012. Jennings will be 29 years old when the 2013 season begins, so if he stays healthy, his best years could be ahead of him.
I think San Diego’s front office should pursue New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker or Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe if one or both of them become free agents. Jennings, Welker or Bowe would be a great fit with San Diego.
San Diego’s offensive line gave up 49 sacks in 2012 which ranked fourth in the league. This was one of the reasons why San Diego ranked 22nd in receiving yards because Philip Rivers did not have time to throw to his receivers at times.
If San Diego is able to sign Jennings and he stays healthy, I expect San Diego’s offense to click because a threat like Jennings would open up the field for San Diego’s rushing attack as well.
